This is what Marlee said about the experience, "Mom, I turned around to see you, and you were laying on the ground!"
Yup, that's what happened. My right foot decided to see if I could do the splits (which I have NEVER been able to do). Luckily, I caught it before it succeeded, and corrected the silly foot. Unfortunately, my center of gravity couldn't catch up with my "cat like reflexes", so me and my 15 library books fell, completely flat on my back, in the mud and snow! Poor Nathan, he ran to me not knowing what to expect. It's okay to laugh at this story, because I did not get hurt, and all the BLACK mud came out of my sweater, t-shirt, tank top, and pants. However, my ego was a little bruised. I'm sure it looked pretty funny.
